Can go via discretionary admission. Furthermore his GPA is on the ascent. I see no reason why he can't be admitted if his bmat score is 7.0.

As I chose the FYP route, i have a specialization in biomedical. I am in my third year, final semester now too. GPA wise, I didn't really have fantastic gpa from the beginning. My current gpa was from
Sem 1 - 2.2
Sem 2 - 2.6
Sem 3 - 3
Sem 4 - 3.4
Sem 5 - 3.9 ( A for FYP )
Sem 6 - Ongoing
I didn't have a good gpa initially as lots of life issues like my dad passing away had demoralized me, therefore i had no motivation to study at all. Hence, I would like to ask if entering/switching to the medical field is even a good choice? And if its even possible for me to enter the undergraduate programme from NUS/NTU or would i have to go overseas to pursue this career?

Thanks for everyone responses in advance!

Creating two products is excellent. Shows that you are versatile, have great softskills and great hard skills.

Essential for modern day medical practice, collaborative interdisciplinary.

Unregistered u hav no chance. u need a related diploma and overall 3.9 GPA to even get a shot at the interviews for NUS/NTU. your only chance is to spend 250k+ and try to find a lesser known OZ/UK university.
